My Winter Travels, Part 13: Huang Shan

Huang Shan Picasa Photo Album
After spending two days in Hangzhou, we took a 5 hour bus ride to Huang Shan on February 14th. Huang Shan means "Yellow Mountain" (although it's actually a mountain range) and is one of China's most famous mountain ranges. We stayed two nights in Tangkou, the little town at the base of the mountain. This gave us a full day to hike around Huang Shan and enjoy the scenery. Overall, I'd say I enjoyed the scenery at Chang Bai Shan more (particularly the heavenly lake), but Huang Shan is justifiably famous and was well worth the visit. Let's go straight to the pictures...

I like how this rock formation reminds of a hand with five fingers.

If you look closely, you can see a bridge in the bottom left corner, and a staircase carved into the mountain in the center.

There were several restaurants and hotels at Huang Shan. Everything has to be brought up by one of these guys. I sure wouldn't want that job!

Next, we took a bus back to Hangzhou and flew from there to Beijing, just in time for Spring Festival.
